On November 24, Manny Pacquiao will return to action in Macau to face Brandon Rios, and boxing betting fans wonder how the Filipino will do in the ring this time around.
The 34-year-old, who is a big favourite with many fans that follow the boxing odds, was focused on his political career since his knockdown in December against Juan Manuel Marquez made it back-to-back losses.
There was plenty of speculation amongst many boxing betting fans that he might retire from the sport, but instead, for the first time since 2006, Pacquiao will fight outside the US later this year.
Boxing betting fans learned that in a welterweight fight his opponent will be Rios, the WBA’s former lightweight champion – a very aggressive American fighter who will enter the contest on the back of a points loss to Mike Alvarado.
“Manny is definitely going to get his mojo back with this fight,” trainer Freddie Roach said.
“I think it’ll be an exciting fight but that Manny is going to land and knock this guy out somewhere along the way.
“Rios likes to exchange and his style is not really difficult to figure out, so Manny’s going to hit him.”
Promoter Bob Arum said: “We want to get the people a really good, exciting action fight. Rios is an exciting fighter, so it’s a good match.”
Boxing betting fans everywhere are also very confident that they will witness a very intense fight, and anticipate plenty of action when this contest gets underway.

Regarding the decision made to have the fight take place in China-owned Macau, Arum said: “We think it opens a tremendous market in China because it enables us to do pay-per-view there in ways that we haven’t done before.”
Boxing betting fans all over the world that follow Pacquiao can’t wait to see this fight take place, and many of them are certain that they will see him clinch a huge win in November with great boxing odds.
